djwuk: Well it seems clear to me that pro-DX is dead, as Nikon is concerned (CF too it seems, as a storage medium -a pity as I prefer them). I do wonder what use WI-fi is when with a camera like this you are surely going to be shooting RAW. Would have preferred it to be based on the D800 body too. I think that if I were to go FX, it would still have to be with the D810.

Like JD above, I prefer CF because they feel more substantial an durable than SD. One thing we perhaps ought to be wondering is, when they launched the D4 did Nikon think that XQD would eventually replace CF? If Canon had adopted it in the 1DX and perhaps the 5d series, and Somy has adopted it in their FX bodies, perhaps that would soon be the case, but with only the D4/s supporting it, starting to look,like an orphan format. Am I right in thinking Sony developed XQD?

On Nikkor 18-140mm F3.5-5.6G ED VR hints at mid-range DSLR article (191 comments in total)

Surely a revised 17-55mm f2.8 VR would be a more likely portent of a D400(which surely by even Nikon knows it needs to produce) not this. They serious stuff they need to be offering (revised 135mm f2 for one) not rubbish like this.

On Nikon announces D600 24MP enthusiast full-frame DSLR article (235 comments in total)

Had been thinking it would share d800 body but with 16-18mp for ultra high iOS. Have tried D7000 and didn't like it body too small with too many buttons stuck on too smaller body and lacking the solidity of my d200 and 300. So no thanks. Big issue with moving up to fx is the sheer cost of the glass - just the 16-35 and 24-70 would be around £2,2k, I also fear this means no d400,

Well I hope it doesn't have the horrible plastic finish my 17-50 vc has and the af is vastly better with noisy whining and hunting .
